2011 Volnay 1er Cru Santenots du Milieu, Comtes Lafon

“Somewhat curiously, this is a bit less elegant though by contrast is more complex with a pretty mix of both red and blue pinot fruit, spice, floral and earth hints. There is good punch and detail to the lightly mineral-inflected medium-bodied flavors that possess the same fine depth as the nose before terminating in a slightly firmer, more concentrated and more persistent finish.”

Domaine des Comtes Lafon

As prices for land in Burgundy’s Côte d’Or become unaffordable, many of the region's greatest names have looked south, to Mâcon or Beaujolais, to expand their holdings. At the forefront of this movement was Dominique Lafon, who bought his estate in the Mâcon in 1999, naming it Les Héritiers du Comte Lafon. Dominique makes wines here with all the care and attention that has made his Meursaults some of the world’s most highly prized wines. They’re a taste of Lafon, at very reasonable prices.
